Some more photos of this dress I made before I pack it for my trip to the Philippines. I’ll be wearing this dress in a local convention called Kawaii in Manila! If you’re from the Philippines and would like to meet up or join a fashion show I’m organizing, please join our group, Dolldelight PH. See you soon!

Mustafah Abdulaziz: Water Scarcity in Ethiopia and Pakistan (2013)

Image 1: "Bringing the water is not a simple task,” says Mariam Bakaule of the mountaintop village of Jarso in southwest Ethiopia.. “This is the essence of women. Water and woman are synonymous here.”

Image 2: Women of Tharpakar in the southern Sindh Province of Pakistan work together to pull water from a well. Even when one person is done, they all remain at the well to share in the task.

Image 5: After reaching the dry riverbed, women must spend time scratching the dirt until brackish water appears, scoop it into their containers and carry the 20 kilograms back up the mountain.

Image 6: One of the effects of the flooding was salinity in the ground, which affected the ability for the agricultural region to support itself. Here, sheep graze on small shrubs that continue to grow.

Image 7: A grandmother comforts her great-grand child as he suffers from diarrhea, caused by the unsafe drinking water in the town of Thatta. Diarrhea is one of the leading causes of child mortality worldwide.

Women and young girls are responsible for the collection of water, four times a day, often at distances requiring them to trek across mountains in the morning dark and twilight.

OCD & Anxiety Disorders: Crash Course Psychology #29

Ever call someone OCD because they like to have a clean apartment? Ever tell someone you have a phobia of spiders when, in fact, they just creep you out a little? In this episode of Crash Course psychology, Hank talks about OCD and Anxiety Disorders in the hope we’ll understand what people with actual OCD have to deal with as well as how torturous Anxiety Disorders and Panic Attacks can actually be.

effective feminism is realizing that every struggle is not your own and that you can’t always relate

 you can always provide support and solidarity

but sometimes you gotta realize

that it’s not about you right now
